    Sue for damages in Tyne and Wear


    Claim the compensation you’re entitled to

    Personal injuries can have a significant impact on your life.

    Even seemingly minor injuries, such as superficial facial lacerations and mild back pain, can cause long-term pain and suffering, affecting your ability to run your household, earn a living, and enjoy your favourite pastimes.

    Improve your quality of life – sue for damages in Tyne and Wear

    At the Accident Advice Helpline, we can help you to make a 100% no win, no fee* accident claim against the guilty party, enabling you to receive the compensation you need to get your life back on track.

    A successful personal injury claim will assist you in improving not only your own quality of life, but also that of your loved ones. If you win your claim, either through an out of court settlement or a court hearing, you will receive two main types of damages:

    General damages

    General damages will compensate you for your pain, suffering and loss of amenity (the impact your injuries have had on your home and work life). To succeed in securing you a general damages settlement, your lawyer will need to obtain independent medical evidence to prove your entitlement to compensation.

    He or she will then use the resulting medical report as a starting point for negotiating your settlement.

    Special damages

    Special damages will compensate you for the losses and expenses you have incurred as a result of your injuries. To provide you with a special damages settlement, your lawyer will require you to supply evidence in the form of receipts for expenses such as medication and treatment costs, travel fares, parking charges, and nursing care costs.

    When making a claim for compensation, it is important for you to realise that the court will not allow you to profit from the guilty party when you sue for damages in Tyne on Wear. The aim is to return you to the financial position you were in before you sustained your personal injuries.
